I love this book and I recommend it to all my pregnant friends and family. I read it before my first baby and now im reading it again before the birth of my second in a few weeks time. My daughter is 19 months old now and when I first read it I thought that alot of the info sounded like common sense and that I would def do as the French but reading it now, its like a breath of fresh air again, and I see that I have actually fallen into the trap of many of the non French moms, obsessing/anxious/guilt ridden- feelings that are expected of moms it appears.
Unfortunately the UK/Ireland is VERY like America now, especially when it comes to parenting, so I related to everything in those terms. I bought all the What to Expect and have Gina Fords full book collection and Baby Whisperer, but this book is the most practical and honest one and yes some argue its common sense but really, common sense goes out the window when you have small children-lack of sleep maybe?
I cannot praise this much more than telling you its a fantastic book for mommas who sometimes feel like the dont know what the hell they are doing and want a laugh and some to tell you to basically not sweat the small stuff. French mantra being happy momma is a happy baby.
I know this wont be the last time I read it :)
